Minimalism is a modern trend in interior designing. Nowadays, designers have to work with the least amount of space and resources and hence they believe in taking the best usage of the little they have. In a minimalist home, you will find minimal furniture, open rooms with ample sunlight, less interior decoration and detailing which upholds simplicity as a key element. These homes are easier to maintain as not much time is needed to clean the entire home. If you are planning on going for such a minimalist concept, here are some tips that will help you.
Simple color themeMinimalist homes have lesser interior detailing and hence they use very pale and calm colors. White is the most frequent color used, however you don’t need to stick to it. Modern homes accentuate one wall so choose one of each room and paint it a different brighter color but ensure the subtlety is maintained. You can even go for metallic colors such as silver, bronze, dull gold etc. These can also be used in kitchen renovations Newcastle NSW. If not, try to highlight a unique element of the room, such as a classic candle stand, crystal vase, or Kashmir rug. Base your colors on the items so that they complement the piece.
- Rethink your storageThe point is to hide your clutter or more importantly to remove it. If you are hiding, you need places to hide your stuff and a few cabinets won’t do. First, remove all unnecessary stuff and plan on storing your essentials. When you are buying furniture, check for coffee tables or TV stands with ample shelves so that you could organize your stuff on them. Even your better kitchen designers need to keep in mind the need for ample storage space to put all those food items and utensils in. A rack full of magazines and books scattered all over can instantly give the feel of an untidy and congested room. So, keep track of the clutter you bring in and be sure to take them out when its time.
- Remove the excessIf you’ve adorned your sofas with top covers and blankets, take them away. The unnecessary rugs, drapes, blinds, furniture and most importantly your clutter need to be removed immediately. If you have stuff you aren’t using, possibly a bean bag, or rocking chair, well sell it off. There’s no point keeping it and the extra cash could help. The removed clutter will make your room look spacious and cleaner. Keep only what is frequently used and necessary since less stuff means less cleaning time.
